Built for Your Feet, Built to Last

The most crucial aspect of a work boot for wide feet? The fit. Here, the Cartwright II shines. It comes in various wide width options, including D, 2E (W), 4E (XW), and 6E (XXW), ensuring a comfortable, secure fit that won’t leave your toes feeling cramped. But a good fit is just the beginning. This boot boasts a full-grain success leather upper.

Success leather is a premium type of full-grain leather specifically chosen for its exceptional durability and performance in work environments. Here’s how it benefits you:

  • Enhanced Toughness: Success leather undergoes a unique tanning process that makes it exceptionally resistant to abrasions, tears, and punctures, ideal for withstanding the rigors of demanding jobs.
  • Superior Water Resistance: While the Cartwright II likely features a waterproof membrane for complete wet protection, success leather itself offers a natural level of water resistance. This adds an extra layer of defense against moisture and keeps your feet drier for longer periods.
  • Easy Maintenance: Success leather is known for being relatively easy to clean and maintain. With proper care, it will retain its strength and appearance for years to come.

And let’s not forget about those surprise puddles or wet work environments. The Cartwright II boasts a waterproof membrane that shields your feet from moisture, keeping them dry and comfortable in less-than-ideal conditions.
